Lee Enfield #4 MkI*
R.O.F. Maltby - Yorkshire 1943 - restored
This is a very nice, like new Lee
Enfield #4 MkI* made at Maltby in 1943.
It came to me with the forend cut down
and missing the handguards and there were four holes in the
left receiver for a scope mount. Unfortunately the holes did
not line up with the sniper scope of the period and the gun
has no "TR" stamp on it designating a sniper rifle.
To bring this gun back to original
condition the old scope mount holes were welded up and the
receiver refinished. All of the wood was replaced with
matching NOS pieces which are all very nice English walnut.
The buttstock and forend are marked John Curtis and Sons of
Leeds, the handguards are marked William Sikes and the other
replacement metal parts are all original and marked for
various UK suppliers.
The barrel has a very good bore with
strong rifling, about 8+/10. It is English export marked and U.S. import marked. All
numbers match and all original parts are correct UK
manufactured pieces. All of the metal
parts retain about 95+% of the original finish (with the
receiver being refinished to match after the repairs). The
rifle went back to Maltby at some time for repair before
export as it is marked 'FTR'.
The action is smooth and locks
up tight. It comes with an original bayonet and scabbard and
a nice reproduction sling.
Overall a very nice, clean like-new rifle
that would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any
The pictures will tell you more.
